David L. Carter

February 17, 1936 – May 23, 2020

David L. Carter, age 84, of Mishawaka, died on May 23, 2020.  Originally from Michigan, David moved to Indiana in 1970.  He graduated from Central Michigan University in 1958 with a B.M.E. degree, taught music for six years, and then transitioned to retail, becoming department manager in five stores.  Upon retirement, he continued to work part time until 2010.  He was a member of Southside Christian Church, and a special kindred men’s group.

     He leaves behind his much cherished extended families: brother Gary; daughters: (1) Lisa Metzner (Terry); (2) Laurie Elliott; (3) Amy Reiske (Bob); (4) Lizabeth “Betsy” Rogers (Mike) – grandchildren: (1) Amanda Metzner, Meghan Thompson (Chad); (2) Jacob Elliott, Alyssa Elliott; (3) Joshua Elliott (Chelsea), Elizabeth Elliott; (4) Brian Williams; 17 great-grandchildren, former wife Jean Unger (Dick), and special friend, Cheryl Swartz.

     He was preceded in death by parents Ted and Jeanette, brother Lee, and grandson Nicholas Metzner.  Two miniature schnauzers – first Mytse, then Mollie – were household joys.  There will be no visitation or funeral.

Welsheimer Family Funeral North Home is assisting with arrangements.  Family and friends may leave email condolences at www.welsheimers.com.
